Vueling goes for the connections

VUELING will start connecting passengers through its Barcelona El Prat hub from 5 July, a move that it expects will allow it to carry 250,000-350,000 additional travellers this year and at least one million extra passengers in 2011.  From announcing the project, in less than 24 hours the airline’s web site recorded 18,000 enquiries.  The new connectivity will provide passengers with 418 "Vueling-to-Vueling" city-pairs via Barcelona.  Customers will buy only one ticket and baggage will be through tagged, the system set up for a minimum 90-minute connection.  El Prat’s Terminal 1 is just 12 months old, a fine building in itself and with its fully automatic baggage system is perfect for such an innovative and ambitious project.  Waiting passengers will be tempted by various offerings including VAT redemption.  Should any routes provide outstanding figures Vueling will then be able to consider direct services. www.vueling.com
